Interests primarily focus on understanding the development of the terrestrial planets in terms of the geophysical evolution and the evolution of Earth’s biosphere. Geobiology research is focused on investigating microbial communities that form conical structures as a means to better understand the formation of conical stromatolites.

My current research focuses on the analysis of microfossils from the post-Sturtian glaciation, pre-Marinoan glaciation interval (~715-635 Ma). I am interested in combining micropaleontological and organic geochemical studies to shed light on eukaryotic life during the Neoproterozoic.

My current work focuses on characterizing the physiological controls on the upper limit of sulfur isotope fractionation during microbially-mediated reduction of sulfate. I am broadly interested in understanding the influence of organic matter composition on sedimentary processes, in the context of Earth surface history and geochemistry.
